The days of letting residents choose street trees are over*

The urban forest is "green infrastructure". We should no more let lay people design it than we do "grey infrastructure".

Selecting street trees is already a complex algorithm and it's about to get even more so as we factor in climate change as well.

Times have changed. Our methodology must too.

* Councils still need to engage with their residents but more from an educational perspective.
